4 Paintings A Week

Our Daily Painting group is at it again! Heather Earnest, Pat Weaver, Nancy Johnson and Lynn Ashford and myself have committed to the challenge. To encourage bigger works, we have redefined our goals and decided on 4 paintings a week and a blog about it on Thursdays. My first week at it resulted in only 3 pieces but they are huge and I love them!! Here's what each of us did.

Christine Peloquin;  acrylics, charcoal, fabric and paper collage on wood panel

Heather Earnest; watercolor

Pat Weaver; watercolor

Nancy Johnson; watercolor

Lynn Ashford; watercolor and acrylics

Have Panels. Will Travel. Part 1

All of you fabulous workshop students already know the joys of packing it all up and shlepping your stuff to a new venue to work.  Today I had the privilege and joy of doing just that-- sans workshop! I got to paint in Sandy's fantastic studio (jeeeeaaalooouuusss) over looking the water with fabulous women that I just adore! Advice for the day; if you are feeling stuck or uninspired, especially if you normally work alone, paint with friends! We all know and love the energy of a workshop or class with cool people, so create your own! Thank you Heather for making it happen and Sandy for being the gracious host. And Judy, so great to paint and hang out with you too. Next one is at my house. All I can offer right now is pool side on the ping pong table.  Haha But a new studio is in the works!

I'm continuing to travel this weekend with the perfect formula: supplies, intention, inspiration, a deadline and the best traveling companion. Stay tuned to see what happens. :D
